Blender is a powerful, open source program that allows a wide range of creative work. This free class will focus on how to use Blender to create 3D models that can be printed on one of the NIH Library’s 3D printers.
Through the NIH Library’s Technology Sandbox, a 2014 trial of 3D printers exposed NIH staff to cutting edge technology for work and research. The pilot was so successful that the Library is now permanently offering free 3D printing services.
